Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released in early 1969, Neil Young's first solo album is essentially an extension of "Broken Arrow" and "Expecting to Fly", his two most inventive contributions to Buffalo Springfield. Jack Nitzsche arranged and produced several of the tracks, fusing haunting strings and even funky female backing vocals to acoustic-oriented songs like "Here We Are in the Years" and "The Old Laughing Lady". "The Loner" is the one song from Neil Young to achieve classic-rock immortality, but "I've Been Waiting for You" is almost as good, and the rambling "Last Trip to Tulsa" presages the dark acoustic epics of On the Beach. Though it's not an essential album, Neil Young--like the man himself--is rarely less than interesting. --Dan Epstein

3.0 out of 5 stars The LP is much better Oct. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is good, but only if you have it on vinyl. The song "What did you do to my life" is mixed very badly on the cd, with that sort of droning incredibly irritating organ sound. This is only one instance of the poor transfer to digital that occured with this cd. It is on one of the best songs on the album, but just sounds horrible on the cd. I don't think they put this one out on vinyl since the early eighties, I was lucky to get it from an old neighbor. On LP, "what did you do to my life," without the bad electronic noises, gives the album a cohesion that it otherwise lacks. Does anyone else out there know what I'm talking about? The rest of the album lacks the rich production level of the LP. It's almost like it's a completely different album. I know--this is Neil Young minutia, but I just can't get over how bad this album sounds on cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent debut from Mr. Young July 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
Having departed Buffalo Springfield, Neil had a full palette to explore his muse and this debut offering has two gems on it. One of them, "The Loner," is a true Young classic. Sadly, the other seems to be overlooked by a lot of folks, which is a shame because it's a fun, surreal Neil playing with words and music. What song is that, the nice, long, "Last Trip to Tulsa." Though it bears no musical resemblance to the soon-to-be-written "Cowgirl in the Sand," Young's "Last Trip to Tulsa" sets the scene for his departure from 2-3 minute tunes to stretched out tunes that, in my opinion, are his best work ("Cowgirl," "Down by the River," "Cortez the Killer," "Like a Hurricane," etc.). When Neil stretches out, structure loses its importance and his musical soul breaks through. OK, "Last Trip to Tulsa" is acoustic jamming and the other songs I mentioned are electric, but this was a harbinger of the great things to come. As debut albums go, it's not as good as, say, David Crosby's "If Only I Could Remember by Name," but it's still worthy of 4 stars and a larger audience. Buy this album, as well as "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" and "After the Gold Rush" and you will have the foundation of albums upon which Neil has built his career. Yes, "Harvest" (his fourth outing) is great, but these first three albums really established Neil Young as a musical presence, and "Harvest" was the coup de grace. If you've never heard "Last Trip to Tulsa" you owe it to yourself to buy this CD. It didn't make it onto "Decade" and it won't ever make it on a "Decade II" (or whatever) or the mythical, much-hoped-for, never-to-be-released box set, so you'll have to buy this CD. It's worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neil's debut is also one of his odder efforts Nov. 5 2001
Format:Audio CD
Neil Young has had a long and glorious career of many soaring highs and a few glaring missteps. His debut album falls somewhere in between. Most of Neil's solo work has featured softer folk rock or the loud guitar-laden epics he perfected with Crazy Horse. This album, while it contains a little bit of both styles, is dominated by almost jazz oriented studio tricks and female backing vocalists, particularly on the catchy but weird "The Old Laughing Lady," which Neil would do to much better effect nearly a quarter century later on his "Unplugged" album. "The Loner," with its sharp guitar bite, anticipates his work with Crazy Horse, while the epic nine-minute opus "The Last Trip to Tulsa" closes the album in suitably strange fashion. Overall, "Neil Young" is a good album for Young fanatics, but for casual fans I would recommend any one of at least a dozen other Young albums first, starting with "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" and "After the Goldrush" the two album that immediately followed this one. Neil only hints at his unique genius on this effort.

This album is Neil Young at his very best and is in my top ten of classic albums. it has everything, Neil's perfect voice, perfect timing,outstandingly beautiful guitar playing by Neil. The album begins with 'The emperor of Wyoming' a pretty piece of music that is quite relaxing to listen too, the next song is a real classic, 'The Loner' Neil vocals on this song is really exciting to listen too as he delivers a smooth, emotional song about a man who has not and cannot get over his lover who has left him. The next 2 song 'If I Could Have Her Tonight', 'I've Been Waiting for You' are a really wonderful and he delivers them in a sensitive and uniquley beautiful way, that only he can, each song is like diamonds and pearls, gems or contemporary jewelr, truly solid gold. The following song 'The Old Laughing Lady' is a very pretty song with beautiful background music, he sings it so wonderfully. 'String Quartet from Whiskey' is a nice song, and like the others it has Neils unique style written all over it. The following three songs 'Here We Are in the Years', 'What Did You Do to My Life?' and 'I've Loved Her So Long' are stunningly beautiful and so delicatly sung, these songs are diamond cut perfection from Neil. And now to the last but never yhe least song 'The Last Trip to Tulsa' this song is exceptionally sensitive, so emotional, perfect guitar playing from Neil, it like a diamonds, rubies and emeralds all in on cluster, it is among the most beautiful songs that I have ever listened too, it just makes you drift to that place called paradise. This ablum is like gold, and the lyrics are so delicatly beautiful. Yes, I love it.
